Dennis Arn
Veterinarian (Retired) DVM

Dr. Dennis Arn is a 1977 graduate of the University of Missouri’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Immediately after graduating, he accepted a position at VCA Desert Inn Animal Hospital. He took over the practice in 1980 and began to transform the hospital into the elite animal medical center of which he had always dreamed.

His expertise in canine reproduction led to the addition of the International Canine Semen Bank of Nevada, located within VCA Desert Inn Animal Hospital. Dr. Arn routinely serves as veterinarian at the Silver State Dog Show and is a member of AAHA, AVMA, and CCVMA.

He loves spending time with his wife Debbie, his children Kristen and Scott, and his German shorthaired pointer, Skyler.
